Reyka is from Westerville, Ohio. Wyatt is from Bellingham, Washington. We met in our college dining room when Reyka taught Wyatt how to make an ice cream sandwich by smushing soft-serve between two cookies. That was freshman year, which was followed by three years of friendship, and our eventual romance in the spring of our Senior year.
Right after graduation we jetted off to Mexico to celebrate, recording on a whim on our Iphone, mainly to keep our family and friends in the loop with what we were doing. Our first videos were film-making masterpieces of airbnb shenanigans, burritos, tacos, guitar strumming and getting way to sunburnt. Still, the seeds for Youtube and traveling had been planted.
Mexico was followed by a one month trip to Puerto Rico, where we visited rainforests and famous beaches and discovered the wonders of the Caribbean. From there, we bought one way tickets to Sevilla, Spain, and spent the next 8 months there teaching, vlogging, and traveling to new countries on weekends. During this time, the 50 country goal was born.
Eager to pursue 50 countries, our Europe trip was quickly followed by a month in the Dominican Republic, and another in Guatemala. We booked and went on our longest flight ever to commence our first backpacking trip ever in Asia. These 5 months were a blur of Singapore, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, India, the Maldives, and New Zealand.
We document our adventures to inspire YOU to travel. Not only is travel wildly fun, but it also makes us better people. "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness...Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." - Mark Twain. He was spot on.
